Watch Jude Law as an American pope in the trailer for ‘The Young Pope’

The new drama will premiere later this year

A new trailer for Sky Atlantic’s forthcoming drama The Young Pope has been revealed.

The 10-part series will star Jude Law as the first American pope, Lenny Belardo. The show is directed by Oscar-winner Paolo Sorrentino.

In the new trailer, Law can be seen praying underwater and admitting he has no sins to confess. “They chose a pope they didn’t know and today they begin to understand,” he says as the clip reaches its dramatic peak.
